Highway Safely , The problem of traffic safely, according to an article in llio current issue of Fortune miiga/.mo, is one of 30 inilc-an-hour motorists driving 80 milc-an-houi' cars on 30 milo-an-hour roads. • Concluding that tlic automobile driver is "virtually hopeless as ix factor for logic and peace on the highway," the magazine declares thai the ' solution must he sought through re- building major highways. , • And the need, says Fortune; is not for wider, ^straightcr, smoother highways, but for separation of traffic lanes with dividing islands or strips, overpasses and underpasses at highway as \\U1 as railroad crossings, - denial of direct access to nbbuUing property, and accelerating and decelerating lanes for cars entering or leaving. -' All of this is contemplated only ' for main arteries carrying extremely ' heavy tiafl'ic. \ The cost would run from ?75,000 to ? 100,00,0 per mile and upward, not counting right of way. Tlieifc are few such roads in the United States at "present and there "arc not likely to be enough more of them in the early future to affect the 'motor accident loll to any great extent ,,_ In the meantime it will he necessary to slrngglc with the other factors of highway safety—the driver and the vehicle. The, modern automobile, at least jvlicn new, is not a cause ot , "accidents', when properly handled. -_• Bill from ,lhe nature of many of our ' highway accidents il is app.i'rcnt that • there are on our loads a good many f drivers who lack oven the elemental mental equipment needed for; the safe handling of an automobile, and a good many cars so deficient in braking and • lighting equipment as to bo a menace. If we can't affoid fo rebuild onr ronda •• to conform to Iho highest safety standards we should pro\ide for the , compulsory testing of cars and driv- .ers, to remove the incompetent and unsafe, and for an eflqctivc system ' of licensing diivers through which those habitually guilty of recklessness or drunkenness could soon be eliminated. Upon taking command nL Tetuan of Ihc glor- Imls find pnfnolic Spanish army, I send to nil loyal garrisons In Moiocco and Spiln my enthusiastic greetings. Spain is saved! —Gon. Francisco Franco, leader of the Spanish lUjht- ' ist rebellion. Out of Politics '^? ;," .'•',''* ••....' ^ ' . ' • ™ We think contfi'iUulilUojiH tire lluu Kloyd'Sharp, slide WPA iulmlnisli'ti-' lor, ujwn his Idler advising all ail- niinisti'ativo, supervisory anil project employes thai "no employe of the Works Progress • Administration will lose liis or her job, eillier before or' after election, because of voting for or against any candidate for any office." To the contrary, the letter continued, any 'activity which leaves the impression with the general public or wllh employes that the WPA is participating in political activities "will result in dismissal of the oll'ending parly." The administrator luis served notice that the WPA in Arkansas is part of nobody's political machine, lie can get away with it because he owes his job to Washington, not lo anyone in Arkansas. It is too h.ul that non- policy forming departmcnls of our state government cannot take an equally independent attitude. If we would make the tenure of revenue, higlTway, banking and other depait- mciilul employes dependent upon honest and efficient service, and nothing else, we would accomplish a great deal toward the elimination of machine politics in Arkansas and toward •insuring efficiency in the public service. Rural Check-Up May Help The problem of rcscltlcmcnl, involving abandonment of 1 -vast sections of land and somu small towns, helps to focus attention on Iho question of nival organization. By this is meant, county, township, and school district set-ups with their customary duplication of functions and territories, and consequent exorbitant cost to the taxpayer. Michigan, for instance, lias .found that substantial savings might be effected if numerous, thinly populated' school districts in less -productive sections of the stale were consolidated. Jlany other states face identical problems. The distribution ol population and duplication of governing agencies constitute a ical problem of rcoi'gamVation. So while we're at this settlement question, it'might, bo!. a good stroke lo examine the situation generally, in dtouth areas ami elsewhere.

"He's honest . . .and veal," she thought, wholly unconcerned with the story unfolding on the screen. She was startled from her thoughts as Harvey Jameson said. "Well, how'd you like il?" "Why . . ."

When they emerged from the motion picture theater the principal street of Iho loWn was almost deserted. . . "I suppose," Harvey Jameson ventured, as if reading her thoughts, "that you find our lillle town pretty quiet." "Thai's lo its advantage, isn't it?" Helena said. "Well," Jameson confessed, "I sort of like il. I've been in the bigger cities,. and : some of my friends have; gone there to live. Bui I think We have just as much fun and happiness—and maybe on a lot less money." He looked down at her solicitously.

"You're worried," Harvey Jameson accused suddenly. Helena was silent a moment. "What is making me unhappy'" shc laughed. . , "There was still inothcr reason I wanted to go to tlio movie with you," Jameson said. "I __ I wanted the chance to tell you tlwt I'm all lor you. I know what's happening. That's one trouble about this town. Everybody knows everything that goes on." Helena's heart warmed. "Thank you, Harvey." At her use of the name shei heard his quick intake of breath. ,. She knew then what she would have knoivn sooner had her mind and senses been clear; she knew what every woman knows the moment it happens in a man. Harvey Jameson had fallen in love with her! she went on, "I— I ^ hope ihr.t your feeling reflects that of everyone who works in the store." "I'm sure it does," Jameson said. "That is ... almust everybody." He walked in silence beside her. Thou: "Will you be angry if I make a suggestion?" "Of. course not." "I think you're trusting Roger Barnes too much." "I'm grateful for your interest," Helena told him pleasantly. "But I'm sure you're being unjust to Mi". Barnes." "Unjust?" He slopped, apparently angered by her doubtv "You've never been to the store's wareuc'jsc, have you?" "The warehouse? Why, no. Mr. Barnes told me he'd take me there soon.
